After much research we moved to the area so my children could join this school, I am not disappointed. The facilities are amazing, the teaching staff are fabulous and the kids love it. it has just been awarded Blue Ribbon status - a nationally rated sign of its excellence.

It is a conservative school that put my child on ADHD medication and ostracized him for being different. The principal was strict and difficult to deal with. BAD EXPERIENCE

I attended Kildeer as a child and it was BY FAR the best school experience I ever had while young. The teachers were excellent- and the academics were fantastic. I moved away at 9 yrs old to the west coast and they wanted me to skip a grade because of I was so far ahead! I loved my principal( Mr. Mason) and I had phenomenal teachers. We had an art room in the basement to work on clay and painting. A huge a library- I just adore this school till this day! My 3rd grade "boyfriend" who I reunited with asked me to marry him in front of my old locker when we went back to Re-live old memmories. I can't say enough about this school...I'm just so gratefull 4 its small town charm, Educated teachers, and dedication to children. If I still lived in the area- I would enroll kids without hesitation:)

Kildeer is a phenomenal school with superior teachers, high quality support staff, committed parents, varied programming and strong leadership. Both my children have had amazing experiences.

This school is overrated and is always patting themselves on the back. The teachers are not experienced, do not work well with kids who are in the Special Education Program and provide little communication to the parents. My daughter who was in the district for only a year said the schoolwork was too easy and did not prepare them for High School. I would not recommend this particular school.

Kildeer is not a diverse school in teachers nor students as suggests one of the reviews. My child was very bored as I with the repeitiveness of their school work and lesson plans. The building itself was very nice as are the classrooms but found the entire experience very dissappointing. There is nothing spectacular about this school or its staff, except that Jewish holidays are observed.

This school has excellent programs. The students are diverse and the education is high class. It does help that the school is very well funded. Parents are extrememly involved.

The school is great- the staff is wonderful. My little one is in the second grade and is learning so much. I would highly recommend the school to anyone.
